2013 Glory Be to Kids Chowder Challenge

About This Activity

The day begins with a 5k race along the historic Erie Canal. Runners are treated to an after party that includes WNY's only chowder cook off contest. Chowder contestants begin cooking their self proclaimed "best chowder" as early as 5am. They simmer all day long and are ready to be served to the public by 11am. You can help us decide who makes the best chowder in WNY by becoming a "Crowd Favorite" judge. The Crowd Favorite cook off winner wins the soon to be coveted "Chowder Paddle Trophy".

There is also a 1/4k race for the kids. Children from ages 3 to 13. They get to see what all the hub-bub is about with their own bib numbers, goody bag, marked course and awards ceremony. Join us in October! Throw your hat into the ring and show us just how good your chowder is, or enter the 5k race/walk or just come and hang out and listen to live music and enjoy the atmosphere.And... Hurry... chowder's gettin' cold.
